Hold on to your hats.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory from 1 to 10 p.m. Sunday, with gale warnings on lakes Erie and Ontario. The advisory is for the Niagara Frontier and far western Southern Tier, primarily near Lake Erie.

Westerly winds will be 25 to 35 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph – capable of felling tree limbs in Niagara, Erie and Chautauqua counties. And after the wind, get ready for the cold as temperatures head back toward 0 degrees early in the week.

But we won’t have to deal with high winds or deep snow, so we won’t experience anything close to another blizzard.

“The temperatures will be quite cold, but we won’t have the other issues to contend with,” National Weather Service meteorologist Jeff Wood said before adding, “It’s certainly going to be a cold week, good winter weather.”

The weather service is predicting overnight lows of 2 and 1 degrees Monday and Tuesday nights and an anticipated high in the single digits Tuesday.

The weather service said 1.9 inches of snow fell Saturday, and up to an inch of snow is forecast for Sunday.

“It’s kind of a series of fast-moving systems that are bringing little bursts of snow,” Wood said.

Snow remains in the National Weather Service forecast for Monday, with an expected daytime high of 19 degrees, before the weather turns cold and mostly cloudy.
